Ray Edwards Won't Take Any Diva Crap from Brett Favre

Ray Edwards may be a buttmunch in general, but when it comes to the issue of Brett Favre getting special treatment after he joins the Vikings, he gets it.

One specific thing Edward advises is that Favre forgo the personal locker room he had in New York and just be one of the guys.

“You’ve got to go to war with these guys,” Edwards said. “If you don’t want to share a locker room with them, that’s kind of b.s.”

Edwards added, “Everybody else has got to share a locker room. What makes you so different?”

He’s dead-on with this.  Of course, Brad Childress and the organization will not take Ray’s advice, but will instead acquiesce to every diva-like demand Favre sets before them.  Not only will they give him his own locker room, they’ll probably provide him with his own wing at Winter Park, a private jet so he can fly back to Mississippi and get in a few hours of grass-cutting during the week, and a special Brett-only shop at the Mall of America stocked to the gills with Wranglers, Prilosec and Vicodin.

    Best last sentence in a blog ever.

    Best or longest run-on sentence?  I heard Favre never even had a private locker with the Jets.  I stopped agreeing with this yet another Franophile nonsense blog from Danzinski after “Ray Edwards may be a buttmunch….

  • Mike

    Ray Edwards is a sack legend in his own mind.  He is also biased as T-Jack’s workout buddy.  But on NFL Live Ray just said he would welcome Favre.

  • PJD

    Shut up … Mike.

    Favre + Vidodin – Green jersey = Viking Super Bowl.

  • Spanky

    Edwards should be on the bench and Robison starting!!!!

  • Mike

    PJD, your must have flunked basic math.

  • Mike

    Favre + Vikings = Super Bowl

  • PJD

    Meh, it was never my strong suit like dick jokes were/are.

  • Jim

    P+J+D = Packersfan,  jackass, douchebag

    On KFAN radio Friday, Childress also chided Ray Edwards for leading himself off the bridge by letting that lip flap. Childress admits there is an area off the locker room that Favre may try to use to dress.  The equipment manager and his staff use it but guys like Steve Hutchinson also often duck into the room to watch television or play games.  The Star Tribune’s Judd Zulgad said his sense was Favre had his own locker area in Green Bay because he didn’t want to deal with the media during access periods.

    Childress said Favre will be a great locker room guy.  He talked to former Vikings fullback Tony Richardson, who was his teammate at the Jets, and he had nothing but great things to say about him.  Childress said Favre plays the game with enthusiasm and excitement and there is kind of a boyishness even though he’s approaching 40 years old.

    i’ve always heard that farve is a great team mate. i’ve never heard anyone say that he was’nt, thats for sure. farve himself says that that is the thing that keeps him wanting to come back more than anything else. the comradory of the team and locker room aspect of the game. he misses it when he’s away. the one thing all those guys live for is the war mentality of covering each others back when you go to it. thats what happens when you come together as a team. i speak for myself, that is the greatest felling in the world. i played D-halfbck. my backfield partner, who played a range of “freesafety”, would always work with me to force a runner back to the inside of the field where we knew the other would always be there to make the tackle. it was awesome to look up and see the play unfold. walk up to the guy and hug him and say great hit, and have him say way to get him to me. that’s something you can’t find anywhere else. you form friendships for the rest of your lives with that.

    that is why farve can’t leave. and if he can play at the level it takes to be in the nfl, why not?
